These mostly are on Kachemak Bay in small inlets around oyster farms. Most of Alaska’s remote beaches are not tested and so are not safe. The risk is paralytic shellfish poisoning, a potentially fatal malady caused by a naturally occurring toxin. It causes total paralysis that includes your breathing.

The way Alaskans prepare for such a range is with layers. The content of the layers depends on what you’ll be doing, but everyone should bring at least this: warm-weather clothes, heavy long-sleeved shirts and pants, a wool sweater or fleece equivalent, a jacket, and a waterproof raincoat and rain pants. Gloves and wool hats are a good idea, too, especially for boating trips. If you’ll be camping, add synthetic thermal long underwear and wool socks and make your jacket thick synthetic fleece. Combining these items, you’ll be ready for any summer conditions.

Passengers get up early and cover a lot of ground, with sights and activities scheduled solidly through the day. Stops last only long enough to get a taste of what the sight is about, not to dig in and learn about a place you’re especially interested in. On an escorted trip, you’ll meet few if any Alaska residents, since most tour companies hire college students from “Outside” (a term Alaskans use to refer to any place that’s not in Alaska) to fill summer jobs. You’ll stay in only the largest hotels and eat in the largest, tourist-oriented restaurants—no small, quaint places loaded with local character.
